is an interesting lesson. back in 1963 when we had the march on washington for jobs and freedom, the minimum wage then they talked about getting that up to $2. well, if that was equated to modern levels, that would be a minimum wage of around $15.26. some workers including one lady cited in the article in illinois $8.25. so you can see how far behind the minimum wage has kept with inflation. only about 5% of the workers are being paid minimum wage at the moment. so the debate rages on. >> what do they do in the uk? >> it's just about six pounds sterling. very low still. and there an enormous debate about the minimum wage. but the fact is we like the united states have huge debt to gdp ratios. and companies remains to be seen. so retailers tell under pressure. >> that's still close $10 if my math is correct. steve, thanks very much. see you tomorrow. > >>> an iowa woman swallowed a tapeworm to help her lose weight. doctors across the board say bad idea. so we were wondering what is your most extreme dieting strategy? tweet us your true and creative answers to #way too sketchy. i always say i'll ta
